“Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents.” — Ludwig van Beethoven
This is affirmation for every designer who stands on a musical foundation to power through the day.
Design and music goes hand in hand. Similar to art and a paint brush. With the majority of our time spent in front of the computer, we need music for many reasons. Music offers an escape to a place of focus; where creativity can be felt, absorbed, and expressed.
Day after day, we pour our heart and soul into our work, in the the design studio, striving to produce impactful results for every body of work that enters our virtual doors.
It’s here where we live, think, and invent with the intent to make the world a slightly more enjoyable place for all.
But this wouldn’t be possible without music. Our feelings, energy levels, and focus all rely on music in one way or another. Without even considering its power, we rely on music to set the mood, each and every day.
And contrary to popular belief, work is in fact a place for sound; a place where turning up the music leads to an atmosphere primed for creation not distraction.
From Stanford to Johns Hopkins, extensive research has been conducted, supporting the positive impact that music has on the learning environment.
A student is to learning as a designer is to creating, and music is the glue that bonds passion, focus, and intelligence to production and results.
Although our favorites remain intact, we enjoy creating new playlists as we discover tunes that inspire and motivate us while in the design studio. Let us know how we’re doing and feel free to share your favorites along the way.
